I got a Lenovo S930 last year, here's my personal experience/reviews: Camera (back) is superb!, camera (front) is ok in good lighting condition.. battery is great!.. HD movie recording is also superb! However, there are some cons noted: the lower right portion of the touch screen was detached months after i bought it, the power charging port was easily deformed and the last is that when i upgraded to kitkat, the camera (front) self timer was not present, its hard to take selfies..

if there is problem due to coverage, is it related with my phone? Because, my friends who use the same line but different phone , their coverage is good. I dun think my house didnt attract the coverage because this problem arise a week ago.

the mobile is good special size special camera, but it`s problems are a nightmare -.- ..

1st problem, after 3 months the charging port stopped working, i fixed it twice and and changed it once but after each time with few days it`s stopped again.

2nd problem, the microphone stopped working only with the calls, when i make a call the other side can`t hear me, though it`s working normally with recorder and other apps that use microphone



and more.. :/ and until now Lenovo did not give us any solution, and the replacement can take over a year .. other way, drink your mobile! and buy a new one!

I've been using this phone for one full year..and it still works on top condition..no lagging, or slow..my battery is still last long..the key is how you manage your smartphone..the more ram you use, the more battery it uses..so, manage your apps and use kill apps often..

Has been using S930 for a full 1 year. Finally has to get a replacement.
Unfortunately S for this phone stand for slow and sluggish. Not really a big problem if you are really patient and slow and steady type of person.

The good;
1. Superb stereo speaker which fairly loud. Not as loud as my wife Note II though.
2. Big and fairly neutral coloured screen. Of course S series Lenovo has the best screen among Lenovo phone even they are not full HD. Almost perfectly match resolution of most apps.
3. Battery capacity is quite good. The last at least from 7am to 6-10pm every day. Even with data plan, GPS always on. Even though charging time is around 6 hours with ANY chargers I rate this as good feature because I always charge the phone at midnight and stop charging by 6.30 the next morning.
4. Thin and light for a 6 inch screen phone. Fit perfectly in my work pant. More importantly I can always feel it inside the pocket.
5. Lenovo level of customisation is more compared to my previous Android phone; Huawei P1 and Xperia Ray. Even my new HTC 820 level of customisation looks poor compared to Lenovo.
6. Dolby audio in S930 enable fairly detail tweaking of sound equalizer.
HTC 820 without Beat audio has a very basic equalizer.

The bad;
1. SLOW
2. Sluggish
3. Lag
4.
5.

The ugly;
Charging port has to be replaced TWICE. Even after last replacement
the microusb male side has to be supported to enable charging. Lifting the phone while charging will cause the charging to stop.

My new phone is better in many way except battery life and it has smaller 5.5 inch screen.
